Historic Homes in Fort Worth

Historic Homes in Fort Worth

If you’re interested in owning an historic home there are plenty of them in the Fort Worth area. The oldest residential buildings in town are centered around the original site of the Army outpost on the Trinity River bluff north of downtown. While that area has become the site of County and Municipal buildings, there are still a number of historic residences that were built nearby in the early years.

Historic homes in Fort Worth go back to the 1890’s in neighborhoods like Uptown/Samuels Avenue, just to the east of the original Fort. To the west of downtown beginning with “Silk Stocking Row” affluent pioneers who made their fortunes in publishing, real estate, retail and funeral services built their homes along the bluff. These homes had commanding views to the west, which at the time was just rolling hills and prairie land.

In the late 1800’s folks ventured out west to build grand homes in the Arlington Heights area, and they were followed by residential developers who built many more homes in the Arlington Heights area in the 1920’s and 1930’s.

After World War One the military training post that had been Camp Bowie was shut down and that area was developed into the communities of Crestline (known as Rivercrest), North & South HiMount, Monticello, Crestwood and finally Westover Hills.

In the 1950’s A.C. Luther, Morris E. Burney and others developed the Ridglea Neighborhoods on the north and south sides of Camp Bowie and Camp Bowie West. The earliest developments also included homes in the near southside neighborhoods of Fairmount, Ryan Place, Elizabeth Boulevard, Berkeley, Park Hill and Mistletoe Heights among others.

Many of the city’s historic homes have been beautifully restored, but there are still quite a few waiting for someone to bring them into the current era.

Mid-Century Modern Homes for Sale in Fort Worth

Mid Century Modern Homes are currently in very high demand in the area. They are concentrated mostly in the East Fort Worth neighborhoods of Morningside, to the south in Westcliff and in Ridglea Hills to the west. There are a number of exemplary Mid-Century homes in the Westover Hills area as well. Check out some mid century modern homes here.

Both New and Historic Homes in the Classic Tudor Style are available for sale.

The tudor architectural style that was popular in the 1920’s and 1930’s is available in many of Fort Worth’s classic neighborhoods. This style of home is constructed of brick with typical curved roof lines and ornamentation including chimney pots and glazed masonry flourishes. Many newer homes in desirable neighborhoods have brought the style back into popularity. See some tudor style homes here.
